Pleasant Surprises from Los Angeles Lakers’ Early-Season Games

There hasn't been much to be excited about early on this season for Los Angeles Lakers fans.

The team carried a disappointing 1-7 start into Friday night's nationally televised meeting with the San Antonio Spurs—a matchup which, for the past decade and a half, usually had Western Conference supremacy on the line, but sadly not anymore.

This iteration of the Lakers is off to their worst opening since moving to Southern California, and their fortunes are unlikely to turn around this season.

However, if you squint really hard, you can make out at least some positives amidst the wreckage of another lost season.

Here are some pleasant surprises from L.A.'s early-season games.
